Jake and Dinos Chapman: “Fucking Hell”

The apocolyptic installation or sculptural piece entitled ‘Fucking Hell’ can now be viewed as a short film on Jake and Dinos Chapman’s site. The piece was commissioned by Louis Vuitton owner Francois Pinault as a larger and fiercer version of their original piece entitled ‘Hell’. ‘Hell’ (2000) was destroyed in a fire which ripped through Charles Saatchi’s storage depot. Fucking Hell is part of the Chapman’s exhibition entitled ‘If Hitler Was A Hippy How Happy Would We Be’ which is on now at the Whitecube gallery in London open until the 12th of July. The exhibition took another twist when the brothers purchased Hitler’s artwork at an auction for 115,000 quid. Eyebrows were raised at  the moral integrity of this purchase until 13 of the orignal watercolours were unveiled at the exhibition reworked by the brothers with love hearts, rainbows and stars. To complete the facelift they were now swinging a price tag of 685,000 quid. The inevitable parallels to Bosch and Duchamp have been made but check the video or the exhibition if you are kicking around London town and make your own opinion.
